Get to know more about …
Nestled in the Vale of York, Dunesforde is a four-acre, boutique vineyard established by the Townsend family. Working in harmony with the cool climate, our aim is to produce fruit of the highest quality to make distinctive, characterful wines.
Using inspiration drawn from the vineyards in Tuscany and following a long search for the right site, planting began near the family home in Upper Dunsforth in 2016. The land is now home to four grape varieties, all carefully selected because of their suitability to this northern location – Bacchus, Solaris, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir Précoce.
In 2019 we introduced our first harvest wines, Bacchus 2018 and Solaris 2018, available to buy from our online shop or to enjoy at the nearby award-winning restaurant, The Yorke Arms. In Autumn 2020, we will be releasing our five vintage sparkling wines, which are available to pre-order now.
